Here is a fun sketch for you to try out from the Rubber Romance blog. The very best part is that there is a prize, so go ahead and make a card. Find all the details here.
For my take on the card I used Carrie and the Country Girl phrase. I'm so not a country girl myself, more of a city girl, or even maybe a suburbs kind of girl. Camping and outdoors type things are not my style, but I had to have this stamp anyway, cause it was so cute. I have lots of friends who would love this card and image, so I'll send it off to one of them! Love the orange on this card, I think orange is my new favorite color, so bright and cheerful!
On a funny family note... My four year old is really into Christmas this year. He was super excited to decorate the tree and loves to turn on all the lights and candles in the window. He even will just sit on the couch and look at the tree forever, not like him to sit still either. This morning when he woke up, I heard him coming down the stairs and went to say good morning to him. He said, "Mom, did Santa come last night? Is today Christmas?" It was so cute, the look on his face was pure excitement. He wasn't even disappointed when I told him it wasn't today. He is just excited to be surrounded by everything Christmasy. So much fun to see everything through his eyes this year.
